The U.S. Olympic Committee Sports Medicine staff depends on volunteer medical providers to help provide services to TeamUSA’s elite athletes. The USOC operates three sports medicine clinics at each of the U.S. Olympic Training Centers, located in Colorado Springs, Colo., Chula Vista, Calif., and Lake Placid, N.Y. Volunteers are heath care providers who have a minimum of three years of experience, including athletic trainers, chiropractors, massage therapists, physical therapists and physicians.
Through the program, full-time USOC staff members work with with volunteers to provide integrative, collaborative, multi-disciplinary care to the athletes. These services support U.S. Olympian and Paralympians in achieving sustained competitive excellence. Although the clinics treat many orthopedic problems, there are an equal number of general health concerns and volunteers should be prepared to handle a variety of situations.

The USOC and U.S. Olympic Training Centers are non-federal, nonprofit corporations. Please be aware that fee-exempt federal DEA licenses are not portable for non-official non-federal use.
